Buttermilk Spelt Pancakes

  • Author: Erin Alderson
  • Prep Time: 10 mins
  • Cook Time: 15 mins
  • Total Time: 25 mins
  • Yield: 2 to 3 servings 1x


  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1 cup spelt flour (sprouted spelt flour is even better)
  • 1 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 cup buttermilk


  1. Combine butter and maple syrup in a small sauce pan or microwavable bowl. Heat until butter is melted and set aside to let cool slightly.
  2. Place flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a bowl, stirring a bit to combine.
  3. Whisk together the egg, buttermilk, and cooled butter mixture. Stir in to dry ingredients, just until combined. Let batter sit while skillet or griddle heats.
  4. Heat a skillet or griddle over low to medium-low heat. When skillet is hot (if you flick water onto the skillet, it should sizzle), take a scant ¼ cup of batter and pour onto skillet. Let cook for 1-2 minutes (until the pancakes begins to bubble slightly. Flip and let cook for another 1-2 minutes until pancake is cooked through.


*These pancakes don’t firm up as much as non-buttermilk pancakes. Make sure the pancake is fully set before trying to flip it (or else you will end up with a scrunched pancake.)
